Pumpkin Pie Pops


I decided to make some more pie pops, however, this time I tried using a pumpkin pie filling... and I put them on orange polka dot paper straws! I made them the same way I did before so you can visit my other post here to follow the step by step directions.

The only difference was that I used a pumpkin pie filling, and I made my filling a little bit thicker for the pie pops by not adding all of the evaporated milk that the recipe called for. I just used the recipe on the back of the canned pumpkin, however this is way too much filling for just pie pops! Unless you're planning on making hundreds of them. ;) I made about 12 pie pops and also used my filling to make mini pumpkin pies in a mini muffin tray and still had leftover filling. You could still fill a 9" pie crust really well after making 12 pie pops because you only use a very small amount of filling in each pie pop.

To make the mini pumpkin pies I cut circles from the pie crust just like I did for the pie pops, but placed them in the mini muffin trays using a pampered chef mini-tart shaper. Then filled each one with filling just below the top of the crusts. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

  3. @MonicaThanks Monica. Yes, it is hard to get a lot of filling in the pie pops. I tried to roll my crust a little thinner, so that helped a little.

  6. I really need to make some pie pops. I made cake pops and they were so good, but too rich. Are the pie pops less rich?

    Hey Melanie,
    The pie pops are much less rich then the cake pops! You can switch up the fillings to whatever you like. :)
